We were heading over to Ocean Springs from the White House in Biloxi, and the desk agent suggested stopping by Maison de Lu, on Washington Ave, right in the heart of town for some wine, and their Goat Cheese Tart. I had not heard of it, but so much had changed post-Katrina in Ocean Springs, that almost everything there is new to me.
We found Maison de Lu, and asked if we could sit outside, as it was a lovely day (after almost a week of rain in New Orleans, any sun would have been a lovely day). Our server was there quickly, and we started with some wine, which is very common for us. As we knew that we would be having the Goat Cheese Tart, I started us with the Joel Gott Sauvignon Blanc, and the LaCrema Chardonnay. The Sauvignon Blanc’s acid paired wonderfully with the Goat Cheese, which was excellent. The Chard, not bad, but the weaker of the two. We split a glass of the Dreaming Tree Crush Red Blend, basically because I had never heard of this wine. It was good, and also went well with what was left of the Goat Cheese.
While the wine list is not long, and while there are a few of “the usual suspects,” there ARE some interesting wines.
We enjoyed our little Lunch, and found the service to be very good, even though our server was alone, and working both inside and outside. We now want to return, and explore their full menu. A nice recommendation from the White House staff.
